There is nothing worse to me than a bunch of needless junk spread all over the house.
I’ve been this way since I was a kid.
My brother was the sort that never threw anything away and his mess was invariably always ending up to be my mess to deal with. Same went for my mom. Why she wanted to take up space inside the air conditioning of the home for boxes of junk, I couldn’t understand. And yet, while I lived in that house, I saw a guest room and most of a basement end up being junk storage. The last time I was there, I had to literally move a huge pile of junk away from the HVAC equipment in the garage. So when I saw the first hints of this sort of behavior in my house, I was alarmed. Yet, I did my best to be subtle because otherwise, my wife would have seen right through me. She splits the bills with me so she’s as entitled to store stuff in the air conditioning as I am. Still, I just hate the idea of turning one of our rooms into yet another junk room in a world of junk rooms! I asked my wife why she was using said room and she stated the fact that it didn’t get the HVAC coverage it should. So I called the HVAC company to have them come out and install zone controlled HVAC in our home so that would no longer be a valid reason.
